"We have come to our 20th release in a similar way as in our beginning like a label: establishing a panoramic view of things in minimalist and glitchy electronics produced in an independent context. Histéresis is a drawn trajectory framing intimate and atmospheric set ups to urban beats, flirting in some moments with an alternative dance floor.

Our Release begins with the post digital whisperings from “Ella hablaba en RGB”, of El Lazo Invisible:.."she only speaks RGB, in 3 channels, in front of a screen continuously available.-You have 3 options –she used to tell me, morning is a nice colourful vector".. Like a natural flow, Meiker paints this release with the colours of a warm evening with his track “Naranja (That Nostalgic Feeling)”. We arrive to last thoughts of the day sonic textures with “Sinking downwards in dire ruin (f.ss)” a Bifidus’ track that like his previous work, gives a sound to that state between being awake and being asleep. Insecto from Chile, situate us inside an arena where rhythmic collapses, textures and microscopic melodies clash between themselves.

Rivel, with “Back again” gave us one of his best tracks to date: an undersea dubby garden with paths that bifurcates at unison into his own very logic. "Dodecafuced" by Subnor is a very cinematographic IDM that constructs an imaginary short-film with perfect timing. Emmerichk with "Maquiventa" also forms a narrative with true contemplative thoughts in constant transitions to new forms. AAM with “Bad japanese movie” place us in the middle of a cluster of textures that works as a camouflage to rhythms floating under a dense residual scheme. Zofa in cycles makes display of his ability to leave us in the middle of a field of unsolved tensions that unease the listener. "Photon" by Absolute time is a piece that searches getting away from the minimal as we know it and make us sigh a little bit for the nineties.

Histéresis nearly finishes with Manziping, our friends from Chile. “Después de usted señor” hides within its gentle title a store formed with beats, bass assaults and some problems with catching a radio signal, all of this over an atmosphere which, like some climatic variations, warns us from things to come. Kampión, the man that has changed the FACE of Mexican hip hop forever, closes with “Dreamy Snapshot” an impressive collaboration between MC Domer and digitally corrupted hip hop champion.
